    Default B&Q heated propagator 12.98

    Just thought i would tip you all the wink that i purchased a medium sized , 8 watt heated propagator at B&Q today for 12.98.

    They had a big stack of them in the promotion aisle along with un-heated ones too.

    It's not massive but it's a step up from using plastic bags an radiators for the kitchen garden grower, and at 12.98 it's not breaking the bank, it's worth it to save on radiator space an bags

    thought i best tell you all.

    I've got one of these and I think it's great. Mind you it's the only heated propagator I have ever had, so I have nothing to compare it to!

    I'm quite tempted to buy another one, except I am already running out of space to move the germinated seedlings to - the unheated greenhouse is still far too cold.

    Hi Wren. Sounds good, might have to pop to B&Q tomorrow.
    How large is the base? What can you fit into it? A Half tray, or a whole tray? If you got internal measurements, that will be great.
    Thanks in advance.

    So**s Law I bet it is the same one I bought for about 18 back in middle of January, Sankey growarm 100, has an 8 watt, heated base ,holds 2 half sized seed trays!

    Still my early toms chilli's and peppers are doing well! They will need potting on in just a few days! I sowed them on 22 Jan, they are little leggy, lack of light but I will plant them deeper when I pot them on, give them a nice root system!

    The measurements on the box say Hight..19cm, Width..38cm, Diameter..24cm. Looks like you could fit a whole tray into it.

    My tomato's are going in tomorrow.
